Dude the Beatles are Not my favorite listen, but being bored to tears make me think you've never really listened to the band.

EVERY musician from 1960 on was influenced whether they knew it or not

Jerry said they only reason he got into rock and roll was the Beatles

To each his own, but you are one on an island with the bored to tears comment. Then again, people like Slayer....,

Allow me to at least allow the sample to increase by one...I can step into to echo Arb's take--M&L were great song writers, but musically the band, save for Paul, were hacks at best; and, the DEAD provided mixed signals over the yrs on the Beatles, though clearly the historical database now suggests that wasn't the case (eg, I always used a line by Phil, "...the Beatles were never into the 'revolution'..." to signfify that they were another group that was "too pop"; he and Jerry ended up being much more positive about them in latter yrs).

In any case, though I can appreciate your adoration, I could never listen to them for extended periods, personally. If I were to make a list for "you can only grab ten albums..." or 20 or even 100, they would be hard pressed to make my cut.

My 1st LP was 'With the Beatles' (their first over here) so my musical education began with them. Those first LPs and singles were new and exciting. Then as they grew musically fans like myself learned about their influences and tracked them down. This would lead to Dylan, The Band, Hendrix, Cream, Floyd etc and finally here.

I only get their music (now CDs)out occasionally now, but often enough to remind me of how 'Four boys from Liverpool shook the world' and set me on an incredible journey through a kaleidescopic array of music.

Rock music would not exist if not for "hacks". Frank Zappa wasn't going to invent it.

yeah, i've listened, i listen to just about anything that i come across, their music just doesn't appeal to me; however, it's not by any means 'unlistenable', it's just not what i go for (nor Slayer for that matter btw); fyi, your 'EVERY' musician from '60 opinion is just that, but feel free to swim over to my island any time you want to get away from the suffocating crowds

But Arb, if there was no Beatles there would never have been The Monkees.
